Mixing Synthetic and Conventional Motor Oils
Can you ever blend synthetic oils and conventional oils? If so, what is the ratio?
Yes, synthetic oils can be blended with conventional oils. Several companies, including ExxonMobil, market synthetic blends which are a combination of synthetic and conventional oils. In the case of E...
